we use regular and small Jaffa cakes and also those huge Smarties,regular Smarties and tiny M&Ms (although shelves mysteriously free of these at present)
Anyone else have some really great ideas/know about mini versions of branded goods?

Does it have to be food? Superdrug does lots of mini sizes of shampoo, body lotion etc.

Yes,they would be fun for work at a later stage of PECS!
Thanks,great tip!

Mini Oreo cookies. They come in a tub, versus the packet for the normal size.

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 16:31:10

(have spotted them in Waitrose)

moondog Thu 21-Jun-07 16:32:09

Oooh,would be perfect!

Mini Milka chocolates - in the mauve wrapping, with a grazing cow on the front - versus a normal 100g Milka bar.

Bottled waters - Vittel, Perrier etc - 33ml versus 1 l or 1.5 l

If there are other children with an ASD who love Marmite ricecakes as much as DS3 does - then you could use normal size marmite ricecakes and the mini ones.

Keep 'em coming please!

Mini Coca Cola / Diet Coke cans (aeroplane size). You can get them here in Carrefour, don't know about the UK.

M&S do mini chocolate fingers, could use with Cadbury normal size?

Also M&S - mini chocolate rolls vs normal mini rolls?

big small thomas tank engines. Will depend on the individual child's reinforcers though obviously.

silverfrog Thu 21-Jun-07 17:52:29

And Cadbury buttons - can also get Giant Buttons...

think sweets or non food are better than big things like biscuits or you'll only get one exchange before being stuffed!

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 17:55:47

and extra-mini Cadbury buttons (in the cake decorating section of Waitrose)

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 18:01:03

Barilla mini pasta - mini penne, mini fusilli etc.

moondog Thu 21-Jun-07 18:04:54

Love the tiny button thing-perfect!
Forgot about them!

Yes, I know re large food items Gess!
(Although little boy I was working with today made so many requests for biscuits-bits of-that at one stage I thought he was going to asphyxiate on the crumbs!)

moondog Thu 21-Jun-07 18:05:28

Never seen that Barilla mini pasta.That would be fun in a craft session too..

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 18:07:00

You can get it here everywhere. I think I've seen it in Waitrose.

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 18:07:39

(can you tell we like little girls' make-believe in this family?)

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 18:09:59

Bonne Maman jam - they do mini-pots in packs of three.

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 18:12:00

You can get mini marshmallows in cake baking sections too. Not sure about the brand.

Anna8888 Thu 21-Jun-07 18:13:09
